Hardware / OS
I7 960 CPU, 12GB drives, two 2TB drives internal. The lightroom catalog is on the 2nd drive.
I hava a master folder called "photos". Numerous folders underneath that. It totals to about 200,000 photos.
I right click on photos, start the "synchronize this folder" process. It does the search, gives me a count of missing photos. That happens pretty quickly.
I click the synchronize button, it's now 7 hours later. The CPU's are pegged at 100%
I pull up the task manager
I look at the drive meter gadget on my deskop - it shows just very minimal IO
